Chain Reaction- Can students who understand a topic teach other students who may not have understood and maybe reticent to ask an adult?
Our Lakes Our Voice- This will be the city and the ecology that we will inherit. Lakes are a vital resource for our city. They are dying. Can we save one?
Our Future Our Voice- We may care about issues that decision makers taking decisions regarding our future may not be considering. How might we get our voice heard by them?
Our Traffic Our Voice- Being hungry, sleepy, or wanting to go the bathroom while being on a one-hour school bus ride is not fun. Especially everyday! What can we do to decongest our roads?
Involve- Beyond the bubble of our privilege are children just like us. Can we form connections and do something for them concretely?

Tree RelocationSensitivity and respect towards the environment are given utmost importance at Inventure. Three trees were translocated to #InventureAcademy in a unique initiative termed as the country's first crowd funded tree translocation. The trees which would otherwise have been chopped down due to a road widening project, are thriving in their new, loving and nurturing environment. Staying true to our core values of being socially responsible, we have demonstrated how technology can be used to bring about positive change and promote sustainable development and living. Click here to know more about the Tree relocation initiative. These, and many more such initiatives, are essential to the teaching-learning process at Inventure Academy, and are activities that go beyond academics of a traditional kind, that make children well rounded and aspire towards purpose and achievement. We work to ensure that these values and the spirit of Inventure, stay with our students through their lives, manifesting in their every action, adding confidence and enabling them to achieve, and lead, with wisdom, foresight and caring.

She gave her best timing for 100 m breaststroke 1:21:23. This 2nd best time from Karnataka for this category. For 200 m breaststroke race, she did 2:55:34. This is best timing to represent Karnataka for this category. The games are to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 31. Goodwill ambassador of the Games is Sachin Tendulkar.

Alisha Kalyanpur of Inventure Academy, Bangalore, who had topped South India and was the second highest scorer in the country with an aggregate of 98.2% in her ICSE Exams in 2013 has done it again. Two years later Alisha has achieved yet another milestone in her journey of excellence. She has achieved the highest possible grades in the Cambridge AS / A level syllabus scoring an average of 95% in her five subjects (three A* at the A Level and 2 A’s at the AS Level), with a score of 99% in math. It is exceptional for a student to achieve such results in the Cambridge system. Alisha has decided upon a career in medicine and says “By studying and practicing medicine in India, I’ll have opportunities to give back to my country. There is a huge need and I am happy here and see no reason to go elsewhere.” Alisha also goes on to say “my teachers at Inventure were extremely supportive and believed in me more than I believed in myself. I owe my success wholly to them. I would like to thank Nooraine Ma’am (our Managing Trustee) and Mallika Ma’am (our Principal) and the entire school for standing behind me and believing in me.” Alisha strives for excellence in all that she does. Over her years at Inventure, Alisha has been appreciated as an accomplished Bharatanatyam dancer and keen tennis player. She has been an excellent ambassador for the school and truly embodies the ethos and holistic educational philosophy of Inventure Academy.
The Class of 2015's Graduation theme was "Miles To Go". The evening events commenced at 5:00 pm, and the ceremony opened with the Invocation song, followed by the ceremonial Lighting of the Lamp. Principal, Mrs. Mallika Sen addressed the Class of 2015 with her inspiring words of wisdom, and Vice Principal, Mr. Ramesh Hariharan introduced our Chief Guest, Mr. Harish Bijoor to the stage. Mr Bijoor shared his humorous views and advice on preparing for the world beyond high school. The Inventure Choir performed "The Days", followed by funny reflections about the Inventure teachers by Tejas Rao and Niketa Nerurkar. Three of our Class of 2015 parents graciously spoke to the audience about their children's experiences at Inventure Academy, with a common theme of the "happiness quotient". The evening grew darker, and the amphitheater became aglow with twinkling lights and a soft breeze, as the Grade 10 Moving Up ceremony commenced with their candle lighting, followed by the Candle lighting ceremony for the Class of 2015. Inventure Co-Founder and Managing Trustee, Nooraine Fazal then led the Class Pledge and School Song. We were all treated to an outstanding performance by Ms. Sinduja Karthik, as she sung a heartfelt rendition of "Hero" to the graduates. As the evening was winding down, "The Spark" dance performance brought some hand clapping energy to the crowd. Wrapping up the evening performances was a nostalgic look back at our graduates' highlights of their years at Inventure Academy, presented in a video, which was produced by their 9th grade juniors. It was a WONDERFUL Graduation evening!
